CYBER SECURITY AUDIT SERVICE
CYBER SECURITY AUDIT SERVICE
Application security was not very considered until malicious activity generated by cybercrime grew, forcing companies to take care about the security of software. The more important solutions for auditing source code are SAST (white box) and DAST (black box), that may be complemented by other methods like pentesting.
We make source code audit with SAST (white box testing) recognized as one of the best ways to ensure code security. In this way we can anticipate vulnerabilities in software if we audit the source code during the development process. OWASP can be used to reach an accurate insight into the vulnerabilities hidden in the code. Others vulnerabilities only will be detected with penetration testing.
We were going to launch an application created by ourselves. We decided to trust Puffin Security to check the code of our application and we were not wrong. Because they exhaustively reviewed the code, it was found that our code was very vulnerable, as well as containing some errors that could cause the application to fail. Thanks to his detailed report, we were able to solve the problems satisfactorily.
HELPING YOU TO SAFEGUARD
When developing any application we have to be careful and check any security vunerability. Only in this way we can prevent certain risks, making it less vulnerable in the future. We can execute utomatica scans of the code to detect known vulnerabilies, but after a cyber security expert will review and evaluate the information to eliminate false positive and prioritize the bugs to fix.
Before starting auditing a source code, the main point is to understand the context and the main characteristics of the project. Our cyber security experts will need the collaboration of the developement team to get a comprehensive perspective of the goal and issues as: programming language, context, goals, audience, location, priorities an availability.
Auditing source code is very important to prevent cyber attacks and avoid problems with regulatory compliance
Mitigate risks by detecting and remediating security vulnerabilities. Even better if you ask us an audit during the software development life cycle
Increase end user confidence and company reputation by boosting your defences and meeting the highest security standards.
Illuminate breaches that could be exploited by an attacker for gaining access to your environment and system, and reduce risks of compliance penalties
Commitment to results. We use methodologies that ensure the quality policy (ISO 9001) and the achievement of an optimal compromise, prioritizing to response time and speed of execution.
Adapt test and rules of engagement to uncover unique vulnerabilities. offering services with flexibility and adequate prices .
Performed by elite security testing consultants on-site or remote. We accredit experience in complex organizations in security projects, providing knowledge in the triple aspect: organizational, legal and technical
A multilayered review defenses of management, risk management and internal audit to ensure that cyber security controls are well designed to protect the information assets and are operating effectively.
Compliance with audit standards and ethical codes ISACA Code of Ethics, ISSA ethical code, OSSTMM Rules of Engagement, in addition to the standards referenced in the audit methodology.
The kinds of defects in source code that cause vulnerabilities includes the following: Race Conditions, Input Validation Defects, Exceptions, SQL Injection, Buffer Overflows, Stack Overflows and Integer Overflows.
Attackers insert SQL into a web application database query, taking complete control over your web application database. This attack vector is easily exploited, but it is easily mitigated with a small amount of due diligence.
This is a type of injection, in which malicious scripts are injected into benign and trusted websites. This occurs when an attacker inserts HTML or client-side script in the user interface of a web application.
It is very important to learn important secure coding principles and how they can be applied, this includes testing for secure coding principles described in OWASP Secure Coding Guidelines
In order to make the Source Code Audit comprehensively our team must assimilate and understand the context. That is why is very important to make this kind of audit close with the developers team. This source code audit is a complementary to pentesting or a security audit.
To execute efficiently a code audit, our team follow the general guidelines of OWASP Code Review Guide, like we do in wireless networks, web and mobile application, but adapted to this kind of analysis. When performing a web audit we work with OWASP methodology. After processing some automatically tests, our consultants must analize manually to avoit false positives. Once all he information is analized our staff will prepare the final report with reliable and concrete information.
Once all of this is complete you will receive a final report with a detailed information about all the tests and results discovered in the sourcec code security audit. In this document you will find all the knowledge you need to implement in order to mitigate vulnerabilities and weakness found. You will find all the gaps analysed in depth (description, impact, risk level, evidences…) and all the actions we have executed.
After some experiences I already knew that having a secure code is the basis to avoid attacks through our applications. With Puffin everything is simple, we got in touch with them and we told them our problems. They quickly got down to work, made an offer that suited our needs and started working. After the tests, our engineers were able to correct a few critical vulnerabilities that without the help of puffin would have been impossible to discover.
